Segmental Air Test Kits
Segmental testing is used to identify and pinpoint leaking joints in collection systems. The inflatable plugs are winched down the line and positioned to straddle the joint to be tested. Once the plugs are inflated a low pressure air test is performed to verify the integrity of the joint.
Lateral connections and lines can also be tested when there is an above ground access for the introduction of an inflatable push plug. The mainline plugs are positioned on each side of the lateral connection and the push plug is inserted into the cleanout access isolating the lateral connection and lateral line. Flexible Push-Type Test Rigs are used to perform low pressure air tests on laterals from an above ground access.
